About Last minute romantic cottages

An array of love nests scattered about England - waiting for your special break.

The last minute cottages site is a specialist offshoot from the long established Country Cottages Online, a site which deals with self-catering cottages of all sizes, for everyone in the UK.

We appreciate that there is a need for small cottages for couples looking for a romantic retreat in England, their own hideaway from the world for a couple of nights or a week, hence this site that focuses purely on small cottatges and log cabins suitable for couples.

We have cottages listed in the various English counties and by type.

A country cottage or pine lodge for two offers that private space in a way that a hotel cannot. The price range is wide and covers the full scale from simply furnished holiday cottages up to lavish and opulent luxury country lodges. Just about everyone would like to book the best, most expensive accommodation but realistically that is only possible for a fortunate minority. The thing to bear in mind is that your partner wants your undivided attention and not to share it with the furnishings.

A romantic break away gives you the chance to discover more about each other, to show each other your love and appreciation. You want your lover to adore you because you’re you and not for what you can buy.
The cottages and self-catering accommodation.


Invest your money and emotions on things that really matter.

Booking a self-catering cottage is relatively easy. Phone the number associated with the cottage or email if that’s more convenient. You will need to pay the full balance for a last minute booking and that may be by card, PayPal or other means depening on the means that each cottage owner employs. Payment may be either over the phone or by online banking; the cottage owner will let you know. There will be a stated arrival time and check out time in the same way as for a hotel.

The cottage will be ready with a personal welcome, someone will show you to it and give you the keys for the duration of your break. You will need to supply all your own food unless there are options for that because the cottage is in the grounds of a hotel or B&B.

The enormous advantages in self-catering is that any champagne or wine that you bring is at cost price and the same applies to your food. You can go out to nearby restaurants for dinner or rustle up something together, which could be fun.

Weekends are precious – a time that we can call our own – spend it with the one you love.


The owners of our portfolio of cottages are well-known to us, many have advertised with us for years and all offer a friendly professional service.

Book the cottages and pine lodges with confidence, all advertisers are checked and we ensure that accommodation is maintained to a good standard.


We appreciate all feedback about the accommodation, setting, places visited during your break.

We welcome feedback from guests. This helps to maintain standards and improve services. Do please write to us and let us know about your experience and recommendations. It would be very nice to share those special places with other couples in love.

We also welcome the story of your weekend break, your love and photographs. Do please send details that you would like to see published on this site and they would be included in the gallery. You must have the consent of your partner for publication.
